    The devout soul, however, will discover the illusion from the effects produced. When you seek God by the light of your human understanding, you must avoid purely human concepts, or comparisons which limit, or inadvertently circumscribe His unbounded greatness. For along that path tribulations and trials are sought with the same avidity that the worldling displays in the pursuit of pleasure. A soul which has once known the ineffable delight of spiritual peace can never return to the hurry and confusion of a worldly life; for it is impossible for her to endure it in such circumstances. Let us follow exactly the prescriptions of our spiritual father and of those who govern us in the place of God, that every suffering and good work offered to God may be prudent and salutary. Nothing is known about his early life.

    Our first obligation, then, is to direct that heart and a Treatise on peace of the soul book place its affection in proper things, that exterior acts might flow from interior dispositions of the heart. It is necessary, however, to undergo much toil before we acquire this serenity, for our inexperience inevitably exposes us to the assaults of powerful enemies. And persevere in it in imitation of Christ, Our Lord, Who prayed three times in the garden to show mankind that only in conversation with God can afflicted souls find haven and refuge. Vigorous, realistic and full of keen insight into human nature, The Spiritual Combat consists of short chapters based on the maxim that in the spiritual life one must either "fight or die". We must be strong, we must prepare ourselves, we must entrust ourselves to Christ and to His holy Mother, and we must be attentive, very attentive, to the prayer of the Rosary. Here, Dom Lorenzo Scupoli helps you take your proper part in this spiritual battle so that you can win - decisively - the war for your soul.

    Such faith and love cannot be successfully cultivated without a disciplined will, prepared to undergo all afflictions, tribulations, infirmities, and spiritual dryness for the sake of Jesus Christ. Francis de Sales read from it himself every day and recommended it to everyone under his direction. Through your prayers and mine, it is possible to alleviate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because it is only in this way that the Church can be effectively renewed. Thus every action of our lives shall be performed in the repose of a Heaven-sent peace in which even silence is eloquent; and to be free of earthly care in order to offer ourselves to the service of the Master is to act in accordance with the will of Christ.
